Familia Torres celebrates 150 years as an internationally renowned family winery

Familia Torres celebrates 150 years as an internationally renowned family winery

Today, the fifth generation, represented by Miguel and Mireia Torres Maczassek, continues to pass on the family legacy based on respect for the land and tradition and also commits to innovation, but under the persistent challenge for vine-growing posed by the current climate emergency. If the forecasts are met, this year, the Penedès winery will have reduced its CO2 emissions per bottle across the board, from the vineyard to the consumer, by 30% compared to 2008, when Familia Torres launched the fight against climate change as one of its main lines of action through implementing adaptation and mitigation measures. With around 2000 hectares of vineyards, nine wineries in Spain, and a presence in 150 countries, Familia Torres exhaustively controls the entire process from grape to glass. Today, its wines form a mosaic of vineyards, established in many cases on historical properties and in unique locations; wines that seek to capture the essence of each of these vineyards and that speak honestly of those landscapes, with their terroirs and varieties. Today, the value of a hereditary wine-growing legacy, the identity of a family business with a long-term vision, the innovative quality that has characterized the winery over its long history, and the commitment to the environment, all coexist within Familia Torres. These are values that have contributed to projecting and consolidating its image in international markets and to earning acknowledgements such as being named the World’s Most Admired Wine Brand by British journal Drinks International on four occasions. Moreover, Familia Torres is part of Primum Familiae Vini, an association comprising 12 of the most prestigious centuries-old wine-producing families in the world, and has recently founded International Wineries for Climate Action to decarbonize the global wine industry.
